In Episode 10, we are joined by artist, writer, and director,
Michael Lee Nirenberg. With a massive archive of stunning visual
art as well as a number of brilliant short films over the past
decade and a half, he is perhaps best known for his much-acclaimed
2014 documentary, BACK ISSUES: THE HUSTLER MAGAZINE STORY.
https://www.amazon.com/Back-Issues-Hu... Never one to champion
the mainstream, Nirenberg's current Huffington Post column serves
as a constant dialogue of ideas with those who have pushed
societal, musical, technological, literary, and artistic
boundaries, often from the farthest edges of society, yet remain
culturally relevant and significant. In this 80-minute discussion,
Nirenberg sits down with us to talk about the current state of rock
and roll, punk, post-punk, Brett Smiley, Kate Bush, Bob Dylan, Kurt
Vonnegut, Rap, Hip Hop, Eminem's "Campaign Speech," the irrelevance
of music criticism, the 1986 documentary Heavy Metal Parking Lot,
Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum, and a whole lot
more. We also discuss favorite bands, guitarists, vocalists, as
well as pit David Bowie's LOW and HEROES and Steely Dan's AJA and
THE ROYAL SCAM against each other in a new Rock Under Fire segment
called Gun To The Head.
